After a while we started to drive through the mountains. Tonito kept saying "mountains just like China!" (yes, very UNlike Illinois and Texas). Although the kids loved watching the mountains, these beautiful views and curves did not go over so well with Tonito's tummy.
Contrary to what you see in these pictures, Tonito was not feeling well in the car. This was our stop for lunch, when the carsickness started. Actually this is right after he got sick, I was trying to give him some fresh air and he was telling me about Lion King 1 1/2. (I've never actually *watched* the movie because I am always in the front seat, but I know almost all of the words!!!). This is Tonito in a nutshell- happy and smiling and acting silly (even when not feeling well).
This is *almost* to Mexico City, another little car sick stop. Poor Tonito! I think they sell bracelets or patches or something for car sickness for kids, and we will definitely need one for the trip home. Emil me if you know of any cures! The only thing we had was dramamine, and that came right back up with everything else....
Finally we made it to Mexico City- after many, many stops on the side of the road for a breath of fresh air and a change of t-shirt for poor little Tonito. We had called Tonio's parents from the road, and they had pedialyte-cocktail waiting for him:). The kids were so excitd to be out of the car they were dancing and jumping around, and no one could believe they had just driven more than 11 hours. Aaaaah, we finally made it!
